Mid-range resort with nice attention to detail
The Krabi Sands Resort is a pretty bungalow development straddling the main thoroughfare along Klong Muang beach. The resort restaurant, The Beach House, opens out directly onto the sand, while the accommodation and pool is on the other side of the street in a private garden bounded by the National Park.

The Krabi Sands markets itself as being both distant and distinct from the crowd. Tranquility and individual accommodation can actually be found throughout this area (see our guide to Klong Muang). The Krabi Sands is, however, very different from the five-star, five-figure resorts typically found here – and is perhaps the only high quality, yet affordable accommodation available in this particular corner of Krabi.

As with so many of the resorts we like, the personality of the owners is visible – here, in the meticulous attention to detail. Care has been taken over the biodiversity of the pristinely manicured garden, and to ensure each of the polished stone designs on the bungalow floors is unique. Materials used have been ecologically sourced (teakwood furniture is from managed plantations); and the large, freeform pool is filled with chlorine-free low-salt water.

With its good beachfront restaurant, The Krabi Sands would be a good base for those who want a quiet holiday with active days and early nights. Wi-Fi internet access is also available throughout the resort complex.

All accommodation is in similar bungalow-style houses, with bedroom, bathroom and outdoor terrace. The 26 rooms (18 double, 8 twin) are situated around the pool and in the garden. Some rooms have a sea view. Bear in mind, though, that this is also a road view: those wishing greater privacy may prefer rooms overlooking the green hills at the back of the resort.

Rooms are spacious and furnished to a decent standard, with solid wood furniture, king-sized beds and quality natural fabrics. Each features an individual design on the polished stone floors. Bathrooms come with hot water power shower (no bathtub).

Thai or European-style breakfast is served in the beach restaurant (buffet in high season, cooked to order in low seaon) and is included in the price of all rooms.

Hotel Location

The Krabi Sands Resort is located on the main road along Klong Muang Beach. The immediate area is quiet, though there are a few restaurants, convenience stores and bars within walking distance. Large trucks from the nearby quarry run along the road every hour, but otherwise the location is very peaceful. View The Krabi Sands in a larger map.
